In brief: This is common

As cortisol system activates in early morning to produce higher bp.

To diagnose high blood pressure one needs to have the most accurate device that can be found. This is still a BP taken by a trained human listening to the BP and using a calibrated manometer. i never trust an automated device for my patient unless i can validate it as accurate by auscultation. One reason may be that this patient's arm is not being supported and cuff in wrong place.
